Pelosi fails in bid to extend expiring federal eviction moratorium

In a development certain to frustrate the liberal wing of her party, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) failed late last week to take action that would extend a federal eviction moratorium set to imminently expire, despite her declared interest in doing so, as the Washington Examiner reports.

While a meeting of the House Rules Committee was convened on Friday to explore the possibility of prolonging protections for renters initially implemented during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pelosi did not summon sufficient support for a floor vote ahead of a planned adjournment for the chamber’s August recess.

Though House Majority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) subsequently brought the matter to the full floor seeking unanimous consent for an extension of renter protections through Oct. 18, the measure failed as a result of objections from Republicans, according to The Hill.

The rush to accomplish some form of extension was spurred at the eleventh hour by the Biden administration’s claim that it had no authority to take unilateral action on the issue, owing to a recent decision from the U.S. Supreme Court.

By a 5-4 margin, the justices recently ruled that the existing eviction moratorium could remain effective through the end of July, but that any further extension required congressional action, as the Examiner noted.

For her part, Pelosi lamented the last-minute nature of the administration’s apparent abdication of responsibility for an extension, saying, “We only learned of this yesterday — not enough time to socialize it within our caucus as well as to build the consensus, especially in a time of COVID.”

The frustration detected from Pelosi was echoed by her fellow Democrats, with Hoyer declaring the whole situation “unfortunate,” and House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) labeling it “inconvenient,” according to The Hill.

Even more damning in their criticism of inaction on the proposed extension of the moratorium were progressive Democrats including Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), who set up camp outside the Capitol complex Friday night to show solidarity with those who may face eviction without additional assistance. Bush slammed those who permitted the protections to expire, saying that lawmakers choose to adjourn for vacation “rather than staying to vote to keep people in their homes.”

Subsequently joined at her “campsite” by fellow progressive “Squad” members Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Bush — and similarly-minded liberal legislators — appear unlikely to let the matter drop in the coming weeks, and Pelosi and Hoyer will face increased pressure to take concrete action to appease the party’s far-left base.

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

Who is caring about the mortgage holders of the rental properties? I was going to buy a couple of duplexes as an investment. No way now. I don’t think major developers will quit building too. You think we have a homeless problem today, it is going to get a he!! Of a lot worse.

Mafioso Pelosi is dried up in many ways. She and her husband have done enough insider trading to retire. Get lost Nancy along with Steny Hoyer, Jim Clyburn and her other geriatric henchmen.

there is as old proverb that goes “give me a fish and i eat for a day, teach me to fish and i eat for a lifetime”. this is true for people who want to extend this and that and give money away to people who will not go to work like it grows on trees. money does not grow on trees! those who still wait for extensions need to understand gravy trains all have an end, and the end is now! so many businesses begging people to come to work,there is no lack of opportunity to get back on your feet. politicians who champion extentions and more give away money are not politicians at all. the name for them is complete jackasses, and i apologize to the poor donkey!!

Give us a show Grandma Nancy. Truth be told you could not care less. Now THOUSANDS of families will be out on the street. Which will be a very hard lesson for them to learn about their Demoncratic benefactors. They only really care if it costs them some of their stolen riches.

There are many jobs out there for renters to get instead of sitting home and collecting unemployment and not paying their rent. The property owners have bills to pay and the squatters aren’t helping.

Learned a long time ago that there is no such thing as a free ride. Someone has to pay for everything, and unfortunately it ends up being those who have played by the rules, worked for what they wanted and needed, and put money away for emergencies. We don’t need the government benefits but we are forced to pay for them for those who just don’t want to work and take care of themselves.

Property owners have bills to pay, also ! They are often holding mortgages on owned properties, with payments due every month ; mortgage payments which are NOT relieved by a no-eviction bill from government. Owners also have insurance and maintenance to pay, ALSO NOT RELIEVED BY A NO-EVICTION BILL FOR LATE RENT ! The very groceries for THEIR families are ALSO in need of being paid, in order to be brought out of the grocery store ! And so on, and so in !!! These eviction bills may sound nice to you, if you are a renter only. But when YOUR cost of living is DEPENDING on having that rent paid to you, it is not a “charitable thing” to you !

It is time to pay up or move out. The landlords must pay their mortgages, taxes, and utilities for the freeloaders.
